APPLiA, the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE), the European Ventilation Industry Association (EVIA) and LightingEurope issued a joint-letter on the future of the EU’s energy related products (ErP) regulatory framework in the context of the European Green Deal.

The White Paper identifies key success factors to close the existing gap between standardisation and legislation.

The Joint letter calls the EU Commission to concrete actions to cope with the crisis, limit further damage and ensure that resources are available for a recovery in due time.

APPLiA and EuCER Council call for smart lockdown: European consumers must be granted the right to receive adequate choice and assistance when buying technical consumer goods. 

APPLiA, together with a coalition of downstream users of steel, sent a letter to Trade Commissioner to welcome the timely initiation of a second review of the safeguard measures on steel currently in force. The coalition urges the European Commission to consider the interest of the downstream steel users when taking a decision on the annual review of the steel safeguard measures.
